Sosa’s late foul shots send Penn College to victory

Ben Sosa converted two free throws with six seconds left to lift Penn College to an 86-85 win over Alfred State in a non-conference men’s basketball game Sunday. The Wildcats improved to 2-2, while the Pioneers fell to 0-4.

Tyree Vidal led the Wildcats with 19 points, Erik Perry Jr. added 12, Shaekwon Grant-Wheeler netted 11, and Thomas Ross finished with 10 for Penn College.

• Shooting better than 50 percent for the third time this season, the Lycoming men’s basketball team scored 56 points in the paint and 34 off turnovers to post a solid 85-67 win over Penn State Altoona.

The Warriors (4-1 overall) shot 59 percent (34-of-58) from the field, including 64 percent (16 of 25) in the second half to run away with the game, leading by as many as 22 late in the second period. Junior Chris Wallace led the team with 19 points.

• A strong second half in which the Lycoming women’s basketball team held Susquehanna University to 22 points helped it to a 66-53 non-conference win to knock its second straight opponent from the ranks of the undefeated.

Senior Claire DeBoer scored 22 points and dished out four assists, and Bucknell shot 60 percent from the field in a 78-66 win over visiting Drexel. The Bison improved to 4-2, beating a Drexel team that was coming off a win over No. 11 Syracuse.
